Welcome to the lineup of movies for the Stony Brook Film Festival Presented by Island Federal. Staller Center is the home of the Festival, now in its twenty-fourth year, showing a mix of the best in new independent films premiering over ten days. All films screen in the evening (and earlier on weekends) in Staller Center’s Main Stage Theater at Stony Brook University.

Be introduced to new talent and see some familiar faces. Our films in 2018 featured Brian Cox, Thora Birch, Rosanna Arquette, Meagan Good, Golshifteh Farahani, Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, Patricia Clarkson, Matthew Glave, Laura Dern, Ellen Burstyn, Joseph Mawle and others.

The Stony Brook Film Festival hosts directors, actors, producers and crew who come to the Festival from all over the world. Filmmakers participate in question and answer sessions after screenings and meet and mingle. You’ll rate films in competition by turning in a ballot after screenings.
